My TV encyclopedia says "I Love Lucy" was usually on Monday nights, 
9-9.30 from Oct. 1951 through June 1957.  But it also ran at other 
times in re-runs, and in 1955 and 1956, there were Saturday night and 
Sunday night episodes.  It ended up on Wendesday nights at 7.30 pm in 
Sept 1957, and then it was moved around a lot till it was finally cancelled.

As for the "Honeymooners," it got started as a segment on Dumont's 
Cavelcade of Stars in 1951.  It became an independent series in 
October 1955, at 8.30 pm on Saturday nights, moved to 8pm in February 1956.
